Our New Berlin, WI podiatrists cannot state enough the importance of early detection and treatment. Chances of successful treatment decrease as time between the initial injury and treatment increase. The longer you wait to get help, the more damage you will do to your foot.
What is Charcot Foot?

Charcot foot is a condition most often seen in those who have little to no feeling in their feet due to nerve damage caused by diabetes. The bones in the foot begin to soften and, in a short amount of time, can become weak enough to break easily.

With little feeling in the foot, those with Charcot foot may do further damage by walking on a broken foot. This causes severe damage to the structure of the foot and may forever alter its shape. In cases where the foot has been untreated for some time, surgery may be necessary.
